This an amazing album by Latin American sensation J Balvin. I stumbled upon this album when I was looking for records to create for my show during Basel week in Miami. So many of the albums that I had done at that point were black and white or more somber in tone so I needed a few bright albums to brighten the installation wall. This album is very stark in appearance with a bright orange background and a pair of google eyes. I digitized and embroidered the album in neon orange yarn. The pattern was derived from the zig zag graphics on the inside of the album and I created the eyes as patches and mounted them onto the album.
